7 Used GT Cars That Prove Going Cross Continental Doesn’t Have To Be ‘That Expensive’


It’s almost that time of year where you want to pack up a set of golf clubs (not saying you should) and drive forever cross country. A GT Car would be the ideal tool, however a new BMW 6 series starts at £61,000 and most of us don’t have that kind of cash.

So what alternatives could you get on the used GT cars market?

Here are my 7 cheapskate alternatives:

 

Under £1,500 – A GT fabriqué en Italie (made in Italy). The Peugeot 406 Coupe.

To start off, the 406 Coupe is a Peugeot. Which indicates that there are terrible drivers. As I mentioned previously, Pininfarina gave us the Ferrari 458 gave us a rather lovely design. (the one in the previous post has been sold)

This is still an under-appreciated car in the world of used GT cars. I mean, among all the things that’s wrong, it’s still a Peugeot. It’s not the best looking in terms of interior design, but it’s got a big boot. What more could I ask?

What comes to mind in what to look out for, despite the rather excellent general build quality (albeit really boring interior) is what you would do at services. Clutches, four cam-belts, and (possibly) the water pump and the various tensioners, which can total to about the £600 mark.

Still want the plunge into cheap GT motoring? Here’s the 3.0 V6 one we found.

Still a cheap GT car? The Mazda MX-5.

*ahem* Scroll down. Or find out why Aaron and I don’t like the MX-5.

£1,500 – £4,500 – One of the many used GT cars that is awfully fast. The Fiat Coupe.

Yes, I picked a Fiat Coupe. A car that send it’s power to the front wheels ripping your hands off. It’s insanely fast, so expect the car to be thirsty because of the 16V turbo pushing this savage car to 60 in 6.5 seconds.
